Myeongdong Night Market in Seoul

artikel1One of the busiest spot at Seoul that popular for worldwide tourists is Myeongdong area. Who does not know about Myeongdong?? Myeongdong street food is famous for the delicious street foods and lots of cosmetic stores. Myeongdong is crowded until midnight for hungry food hunters and cosmetics hunters. One of my buddies even went to Seoul for 7 days one week only to go shopping for cosmetics beauty products at Myeongdong everyday.

There are many affordable cheap rates good guesthouse located at Myeongdong such as Gyerim Guesthouse hosted by aged old couples that are very friendly with travelers. The guest house itself is located 2 minutes away walk from Myeongdong station (on Line number four) exit 3 but it’s quite hard to find the guesthouse at first since the main door is not facing the main road. Travelers need to be very detail and open eyes wide to small alley.

From the Subway exit, just walk towards the luxury Pacific Hotel and the Twosome coffee Myeongdong branch at Myeongdong Night Market ( this cool café was opened by singer Choi Siwon from Super Junior boyband on 2013).Besides awesome coffee, the café also offers many varieties of cakes.Really nice for hangout place with friends and family.

Another cheap stay at Myeongdong is Star Hostel which provides budget travelers with very cheap accommodation to stay the night while exploring the beautiful Seoul. Travelers can add the staff Kakaotalk to book the room and the staff is rarely standby at the hostel front office so if you cannot find the staff, just Kakaotalk him instantly.
